If you are looking for ways to help improve the energy efficiency of your home HVAC system, consider whether your attic needs a fan. Most homes have a system of ducts that often pass through the attic in order to bring conditioned air to other areas of the home. Unfortunately, an attic that is extremely hot can dramatically reduce the efficiency of your air conditioner because it heats the cooled air as it passes through. Fortunately, an attic fan installation can often help improve air circulation and reduce extreme heat, but this is a project that is generally best left to a professional.
With an attic fan, you can often see an improvement in efficiency as well as experience a more comfortable indoor environment. In addition to helping cool your attic, the fan can provide the air circulation your attic needs in order to avoid problems with moisture that can lead to even bigger issues.
